The WWFOR runs the Mike Yarrow Peace Fellowship (MYPF), a year-long Fellowship that includes a Fellowship Grant and a multi-day intensive training for high school and college students, ages 14-23.

Fellows learn about peace and justice issues, nonviolent movement building, and gain skills such as public speaking, group leadership, media development, conducting surveys, public relations, outreach, and lobbying. The Fellows meet individual activists, visit organizations, are introduced to current hot issues, and are mentored by experienced activists, public figures, and community organizers from the Seattle area and beyond. Applicants are accepted from all over the country and are especially encouraged to apply from Washington State. Housing and other assistance can be provided during the training intensive for those not living in the Seattle area.

Application Deadline for 2020 Peace Fellowship is June 1, 2020.
